The replacement of the original roof with suitable finishes reflective of the building character.
Enhancing the interior protects the historical status of the building. The recent upgrades ensure the community can use the spaces in a variety of ways.
Extending a historic building needs to be done so with sensitivity. The addition subtly integrates without detracting from the character of the original school building.
Critical to the success of this project was the specification of materials and detailing to ensure the building would be suitable for the needs of the community. The aim to not affect the original features and overall character has been achieved. Building running costs are reduced through significant thermal improvements to the floor, walls and roof, together with new services installations. Small details like these make a difference in how groups can serve their locality.
Since Handover, we feel the building and the community have been improved as a result of this project. Seeing these positives is a source of pride, and we are grateful to have played a part.
Clever use of Bi-folding doors easily allows 1 space to become 2.
